Browsing for Gifts

I have not posted anything in a while. It has been hectic here for the past 2 weeks, sick kids, my oldest had an accident that left her with fractured ribs and so forth. Things are getting better though and I had some time to go "WINDOW SHOPPING" and I found some goodies!!!

This first item I found by browsing the children's section on etsy! This is from seller dara43 and her clip really caught my eye!

This is so BEAUTIFUL!!! It looks like she took a great deal of time to get it just right. The colors are so perfectly complimentary to each other and of course is just right for the HOLIDAY SEASON!!! It sort of looks like a yummy chunk of sugar rock candy!!! Click on the picture to take you to the listing itself and if you buy this clip..tell dara43 that I sent ya!

Well this next item just gave me baby fever all around. Ive made booties before, but never like this!!!

AREN'T THESE THE MOST ADORABLE BOOTIES EVER!!! These booties are made by the seller funkyshapes Now I wish my girls were still babies!!! My best friend is having a baby and you can rest assure that when this kiddo is born, he or she will be getting a basket of baby booties for all occasions from this shop! I mean look at the workmanship, it looks so detailed and she has other booties too cute to pass up. Click on the pick to take you to this listing.

So how about something for mom. Moms always love jewelry. Katherinescreations has a wonderful assortment of jewelry but this one I just love.

Doesn't this look wonderful? The colors are perfect for fall fashions. This is perfect for casual every day wear or something to wear for a Holiday ball with the perfect Yule Tide Dress! The colors are so beautiful. You can click the pic to take you to this listing.

Heart Spun Crochet

So my first interview is from the owner of Heart Spun Crochet. She crochets the most amazing things! I love her bag down there and she makes the most awesome crocheted baby hats, makes me want to go have another baby! ;o)

After your done reading the article...please visit her site on etsy...

What is the background for you business name?
When I first started crocheting, it was something that I only did for my babies. After a lot of encouragement, I decided to start selling my crochet. It is something that I do with much care, and I am so passionate about it, I put my whole heart in to it, so Heartspun Crochet was named.

What kinds of things do you make and sell?
I make exclusively crocheted items. I mostly do items for babies, but I am starting to add items for the whole family.

What and when did you first get the crafting itch?
I first learned how to crochet when I was 13, but stopped for a long time. When I got pregnant for the first time, my mom gave me some beautiful hand crocheted blankets and baby clothes that she was saving from my nursery. I thought these things were so special, and I wanted to be able to pass on my own creations to my children.

What inspires you when you are crafting?
I like things that make people say "wow, where'd you get that?" I like to make original items, things that you could never find in a store. I like to think that the people who purchase my crochet will think it's as special as I do.

Do you want this to expand as a great business or is this just something you love and like to sell?I think we would all like to make a fortune doing something we love. :) My only goal in this is to share something great with people, and to do something I love.

We know crafting is in our blood...but what else do you do when your NOT crafting?
When I am not crafting I am a stay at home mom to 3 kids.

Anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for the interview and the great questions.
